though it looks like the vote share should go up, let's say it does not. let's say that obama gets the '80s term of the vote he got not good to thousand eight. let's say he only loses graduates by four points. these are not implausible assumptions. mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points. could have to up to 36 points. that is if it does not change. d, ands does get realize if the white college graduates face about the same, it means that met romney would have to get north of 40 point margin of the white voter. let's take a look of where we are now. this is the gold standard. breaks. this shows that obama is leading by 8 points. if you look at the averages, it is a bit high. the averages are running about four points. you are probably up by five points. this is within the averages. it is similar to the pole from the heartland monitor which will talk about later. overall top line, a look at the margin, 91 points. that is basically identical. 7222 among 852 margin. most have been showing this. what this means is that the idea that obama could get 80% of
and white college graduates and working class voters voted in 2008. minorities 80/20, obama. white college graduates a four-point deficit, and the right hand column you see how much demographic change we have just in the last four years based on current population survey eligible voters. according to be sedated, we've seen an increase of three points in the share of eligible voters were minority's and a decrease of three points in the share of voters who are white noncollege or working class. that's quite a lot of change in a short period of time. let's just think a bit about what these figures mean, the figures from 2008 and the figures for today. even though it looks like the minority vote usher should go up, let's just say it does not. but let's say that obama gets again the 80% of the minority vote he got in the 2008. let's get nearly loses white college graduates by four-point. it means that you actually be competitive in this race, mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points among the white working class in this election. that's youth turnout doesn't change
voted for obama the last time, but they can't swallow his position on gay marriage. they're not going to go out and become republicans and vote for romney. >> so, they're going to stay home. >> if those differences are highlights. >> but is it going to be enough for him to say i stand for life? sounds like you're saying i need him to go further. abortion did become a big issue with the platform, competing platforms. how far does he need to go? >> i think he needs to say he's for life. even his stated position, which i don't agree with necessarily, but in cases of incest, rape or the life of the mother, i still think that's a stark contrast to the democrat position. >> just has to tout. he has to put his fist down and say. >> that's exactly right. i think again, the point is, not only will it energize evangelical voters, i think it will really suppress is turnout. they're talking to me about it. i had one african-american pastor in our area who said it's an insult to me to say that the fight for marriage equality is like racial equality. he said don't equate sin with the color of my sk
. >> and doctors, many voted for president obama last time and why are they switching their votes, 15% ever are going to switch. voters in michigan will have the chance to give public workers new powers and put it into the state constitution. about that pass? big deal there. and we just got ford motor company sales, they were up 4% that's year over year, 4% gain for the ford motor company and the stock is virtually unchanged. down just 5 cents. we want to hear from you about everything we talk about. varney@foxbusiness.com, is how you reach us. right, tuesday morning, seven early movers. pet smart is going to move into the s&p 500, replacing sunoco. that's up. and apparel maker the company makes juicesy couture, down 2 bucks at 10. and google passed microsoft and went it an all-time high and now down a buck at 760. and cole laboratories, don't like that, down. and chemical maker seeing profits below expectations and that stock is down 2%. industrial services company called team made less money than expected and down a buck 95. and wausau paper, down 3%. okay. dow is up 12. had been 40, now
that said i would vote for obama because i think he is much less incendiary. in foreign affairs. i think he would do things rather than ignite fires. >> you made up your sunshine >> yes. >> okay. >> what about you? >> i don't register. >> no? >> no. >> conspiracy theory guy. my vote doesn't count. >> i think the overall leadership in the country is lacking. i think it's a big deal. the american public doesn't pay that much attention to what is going on. >> have you decide which had way you're going? >> absolutely. >> which way? >> i'm voting for romney. >> sold. no doubt in your mind? >> no doubt in my mind. he can bring us leadership. lot . but today...( sfx: loud noise of large metal object hitting the ground) things have been a little strange. (sfx: sound of piano smashing) roadrunner: meep meep. meep meep? (sfx: loud thud sound) what a strange place. geico®. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >> bret: welcome back to inglewood, colorado. arapahoe county. the first presidential debate down the road in denver. a couple of states away in nevada the pr
, it puts obama with over the 270 electoral votes. we had that back then. it's coming clear today. that makes states like colorado even more important. and ohio still, it's got -- that is a problem for romney that is now starting to show in the polls. although they came out yesterday saying that obama was only up by four. and had -- the rates were still very much up for grabs. romney people have to hope for that to be true. >> bret: karl, what about that? you know, even the p.p.p., a democratic leaning organization, suggesting some place like ohio is still up for grab. they had it at four. we talked a lot about these polls. and the concern about them. but your take on the battleground states and the state polls in particular. >> yeah. i think we got to approach them with a lot of skepticism. in ohio last week, we had cbs/"new york times" poll saying ten points for obama. and a columbus dispatch poll saying nine points. frank newport the head of the gallup organization had a blog posting that was revealing. he said you have to subject the state polls to the judgment of experience.
base, the romney base, is disease like of president obama -- dislike of president obama. early voting has already started. 30% of the electorate's going to vote or more during this debate season. mitt romney's got to give his people a reason to get excited. and that means attacking barack obama deftly and with humor if he can. chris: i think it will be an assault for an hour and a half myself. >> he needs to get specific, though, when it comes to his economic plan. he talks about all these tax deductions he's going to put forth. how is he going to close the loopholes to make this work? i'm a financial journalist, i want to know. i think american voters deserve to know. chris: the moderate already probably want to know. he's got to ask that question. >> two things. one is that i think it's really strange that they have telegraphed this punch so far in advance on the truth, on obama's veracity. i wouldn't be surprised if they don't do that because they've telegraphed it so far in advance. the thing "boston globe"s a -- obama has to watch, he really has grown to disrespect and dislike mi
these figures in 2008 mean in the figures for today. let's say obama gets again 80% of the minority vote. let's say it again, to actually be competitive in this race, it would have to go up 18 points in this election. that turnout does not change despite the shift in eligibility. 26% as you can see on this chart. it is now based on a recent poll that came out. i think it is the gold standard for polls. no offense to anyone else in the room who had their own poll. they do it right and they have a 3000 person sample. it is pretty reliable stuff. they give you a lot of interesting demographic rates. this shows among likely voters that obama is leading by eight a point. if you look the averages, that is high relative to the average. the averages from about four points. probably up by five points, this is within the averages. the overall topline, look at the black black at the margin, 91 points, that seems identical with obama's margin in 2008. seventy-two among hispanics and it is not that far off. also 22 for romney. what it means is that the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority again i
of the economic strategy to say obama is the president come is a bad economy, vote for me it doesn't seem to be totally doing the trick. then the obama strategy has been ineffective. i think that it's understood shifting demographics mean for the country and the political coalition and he understood the need to mobilize and he's emphasizing a lot of the issues of immigration and women's issues and things like medicare, cuts to education and tax cuts to the rich, he's been very forceful about contrasting his views on things with what he says are the views to the other side which are sort of embracing a host of unpopular positions to these constituencies he's mobilizing the debates and had success with it and police tried to paint romney as an out of touch equity guide working-class person of the team that it's been fairly successful strategy particularly but only with the base but white working-class voters to be competitive in this election the obama team realized correctly there is a very off-putting thing about romney which is embodied in the republican party these days, but romney does

graduates voted in 2008. minorities 8024 obama. what college graduates of four. deficit. in the right-hand column you see how much of demographic change we have just the last five years based on current population is eligible voter data. according to the stated just the last four years using an increase of three points from the share of eligible voters. decreased three points for the share of voters who are white, non college, and working class. that's quite a change. now, let's think a little bit about what these figures mean. the figures from 2,008 and the figures from today. first of all, even though it looks like the minority vote shares to go up. let's say that obama gets a% of the minority felt. let's say again he only loses white college graduates by four points. mitt romney would have to get double the margin of 18 points among the white working class. that's the change this bright. if this test is realized, the minority vote goes to buy a couple points. 26 percent in 2008. 28 percent in 2012. again, the white college graduate and minority stays about the same, mitt romney wil
a free phone from the president. rush limbaugh quickly picked up the line. >> voting for obama's not about hard work. go talk to the cell phone lady. voting for obama's not about hard work. it's about just the opposite. >> the right wings all dialed in on their latest 47% talking point. too bad the fact ts can't get through. there is a national program to help low-income people get subsidized phone services. but they aren't obama phone. the idea of getting universal phone service dates back to the 1930s, decades before the obama was born. the current program that helps people get phones started under president reagan. when did it begin including cell phones? in 2008. that's right. under president bush. so a policy dating back to the great depression, formalized by president reagan and expanded by president bush is somehow president obama's fault? did the right wing think i wouldn't give viewers the 411 on this? nice try. but we've got you. since ameriprise financial was founded back in 1894, they've been committed to putting clients first. helping generations through tough time

to get 243 electoral votes to romney's 191. with eight tossup states. obama win in ohio with its 18 electoral votes would put him at 261 electoral votes, that is just nine away from winning re-election. surprising exactly no one ohio has been a top focus for candidates. while governor romney logged 17 trips to the state this election cycle president obama is making his 13th visit this year alone. earlier this month the democratic ticket made clear just how much ohio means to them. >> if we win ohio, we win the election. >> if we win toledo, we will win ohio. and if we win ohio we'll win this election. >> john heilemann, there has been no shortage of love for the state of ohio this election cycle. president obama and mitt romney both speaking at 1:05 today. i wonder your take on the state it's interesting when you look at the dynamics economically at play in ohio. governor cakasic's great job of sheparding the ohio economy to account for state unemployment 7.2%, lower than the national average, it also undercuts mitt romney's message this economy isn't in turn around and time to get
for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worry about -- they should take personal responsibility. >> romney two days in a row out to link national security to the nati sluggh recovery. he's seizing on new economic data revising down the 2nd quarter gdp. >> this is not just one quarter. this has been going on now for years. china's growing much faster than we. russia's growing faster than we. our economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> but not all the numbers paint a gloomy picture. the labor department announced it undercounted nearly 400,000 jobs in 2011 meaning that 4.4 million jobs have been created since the president's inauguration. slightly more than the number lost in that same period. but the president said there's still measuring work to do. >> we're not where we need to be. not yet. we've got a lot more folks who have to get back to work. we've got a lot more wor

. the obama folks want those people to come out, turn out and vote right away. we've saw president obama campaigning in ohio earlier last week. and president obama had this message -- one, register to vote. and two when early voting starts, on tuesday october 2nd, go to the polls right now. they want to start banking the votes. it was a strategy in 2008. to prevent any type of october surprise, you want to get, if you're an obama voter go vote now and get that done. get it out of the way. >> you mentioned the october surprise, you look at the numbers closer than just about anyone i know. could there be an october surprise? and if there is one in those numbers that you look at, where might that surprise be? >> anything is possible. we have 37 days until the election. there is the opportunity for a big game-changer. i will tell you one of the big ironies of this entire presidential contest over the five or six months of the general election, when it started, every momentous event, whether it was president obama coming out in favor of gay marriage, every monthly jobs report number, the numb
still be deciding whether or not to vote for president obama or mitt romney in the upcoming election. venezuelan's president doesn't get to cast a ballot but he made his pick. >> if i lived in the united states i would vote for obama. >> not the kind of endorsement president obama would like. mr. chavez recognizes that as well so he prefaced the statement as well he hopes it doesn't hurt the president. well the venezuelan president also running for re-election himself. the vote will be held on sunday. >> reporter: when a position candidate challenged venezuelan president hugo chavez to a debate earlier this debate, chavez's reply was the eagle doesn't hunt the fly for a man who has been in power for 13 years, dismissing the opposition as feeble as part of his political strategy. but the equation might be changing. a 0-year-old governor is taking venezuela's political scene by storm. he's facing chavez in next sunday's presidential election while speaking with international media monday, he blasted chavez's cozy relations with iran and belarus. >> translator: what does venezuela have
of the places obama thinks it helps is they had a big swell in the youth vote last time. they had the support in the polls, but, wolf, frankly they think turnout could be down this time. sometimes college students get a bit distracted. one of the things, the president of the university of iowa democrats, her job is to tell all of her friends, all of the fellow students vote now. >> things come up. you can have an exam. you can wait until election day and not know where your precinct is. a lot of student haves to go to elementary schools, they don't have cars, they don't know where it is, any extra obstacle can keep students home on election day. early voting gives us 40 more chances to catch people. >> reporter: now, republicans traditionally don't invest as much time in early voting. but, wolf, as ewe know this comes as a time, this is one of the battleground states, iowa is, that's gone from a tie to at least breaking a few points in the president's favor. that has some republicans here and elsewhere in the country a bit nervous. they're worried about congressional races and other races. th
and voting than it has been -- >> i do want to take a look at your latest article which is titled, if obama wins, what changes for a second term? what are your conclusions? >> there will be wholesale change, all of the cabinet will be gone, much of the white house staff and so the president will have an opportunity really for a fresh start. there's discussions maybe erskin bowls might will treasury secretary. it will produce howls on the left, afraid the president is going to give away the store. but depending on the size of the victory, if it happens, if he just squeaks through, he's going to have to do a lot more dealings with republicans as he would like and is he going to be able to do more of the personal stroking that a lot of people thinks he needs to do as a president wooing members of congress. tom daschle former -- if republicans want to deal, they'll find a willing voice in the white house, but this is a president that wants to deal with a small group of familiar faces whether he's playing golf or he's making policy. it's going to challenge him with a lot of his pals gone. and it
-- if you have the candidate with half the hispanic vote, we would talk about why obama would drop from 42% whites to lower. a hurdle that is so high. the share of whites who have to win become the reagan-s. -- reagan-esque. >> hispanics are not attached to the democratic party the way african-americans are. we cannot just assume because there is a growth of spending votes that those of democratic votes. republicans who run for office did very well with hispanic voters. an african-american republican gets very few african-american votes. that is not true of the hispanic republican. it is hard to run the gauntlet of the primary electorate in the short run. even the long run, republicans can get themselves right on immigration. i think the republicans can do better with hispanics. as hispanics assimilate and you have multiple generations born here, they become moderate on a lot of social issues. there have been republican hopes that for recent immigrants, he might have some attraction. that is not true if you look at places like mexico where you have hundreds of years of hispanic residents.
in ohio and early voting begins there next week, today president obama and mitt romney are crisscrossing that state, making five campaign appearances between them. this is day three of romney's bus tour. here he was just a short time ago in suburban columbus. >> i care about the people of america, and the difference between me and president obama is i know what to do and i will do what it takes to get this economy going. >> i'm joining now by chris kafinas and john braybender. gentlemen, good to see you again. >> good morning. >> okay, john. we keep saying this but i'm going to say it again. no republican has won the presidency without ohio. so what's mitt romney do now? >> well, thing that's right. i think he has to win not only ohio. i think e has to win probably virginia and florida as well. and i tlink's a couple of keys right now to mitt romney. you know, we saw in the primary. they said after the primary you can hit reset like an etch a sketch and change where you're going. think they're a little bit at that point where they've got to get a little sharper message. i think number on
voters, or he can just run as -- if you don't like obama, just vote for me. i'm not going to fill in the blanks for you. that's what he chose. >> you claim the gop has not come to grips with the bush years. >> that's it. when obama came on to office, republicans made two decisions. one was they would fight obama on everything unilaterally. they treat him as this extremist, aradical, far left president and they do that. the other thing was they had to explain how a guy like that could get elected president. what they decided is obama became president because george w. bush in their view wasn't conservative enough. >> he was not ideologically pure enough? >> he sold out the conserve it active cause and dpagave it a b name and gave rise it to obama. >> you called it the single most effective line of the convention. i want to play it for our audience and talk about it. here it is. >> no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. >> what makes that such an effective line? >> that's just
are going to vote for obama just because he's black but among blacks, 100%. romney gets zero. i was talking to a friend yesterday who is a good friend of the woman -- get this, how would you like this job. the woman who is the -- who is in charge of african-american outreach for the romney campaign. >> that's a lonely job! >> bill: she says she can't get -- she told him she can't get any attention at all from the romney campaign. they're not going to schedule any events or have any outreach because zero, okay. now, among latinos the latest poll that i showed among latinos even though mitt romney says yeah, we want that latino vote, it ain't happening. among latinos obama 67%. mitt romney 23%. among seniors and -- seniors get older, they tend to get you know i think brain addled so they vote republican. even among seniors florida where most people are seniors medicare and social security. a 51% to 47%. president obama is leading among seniors. it is among white men that's the only group supporting mitt romney. ag
